Do You Have a Plan for Afterlife Communication?

So this weekend, among other random things, I’ve worked on getting caught up in reading my Association TransCommunication News Journals. Reading one makes you realize just how many different kinds of ITC (Instrumental TransCommunication) research is happening all over the world. It also makes me realize that just like education, technology, and communication, spirit communication techniques are constantly changing. Like a doctor or a brain surgeon, any person studying spirit communication needs to stay informed on the latest news and techniques. Besides things like mediumship and standard EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) recording, people all over the world are getting spirit communication results through the use of radios, telephones, video, photography, voice mail, ouija boards, scrying through things like water and crystals, Morse code, and even dimes being dropped around the house. What is even more interesting is that more and more people are reporting having afterlife communication through things like Skype, e-mail, and text messages. It makes sense when you think about it. Some of us can’t pry our iPhones out of our hands on most days. So as more people who rely on these devices leave the physical, it makes sense that this would be a logical way for them to make contact. Think about it. Even though I get set in my ways, it really makes plain old EVP sound like old news, doesn’t it?  I have so much to learn still…

So, I’m curious. Lately I’ve heard from many people with stories of crossed over loved ones making contact or communicating from the other side. How many of you have an agreement with your loved ones on if and how you’ll make contact after you die? This is sometimes called After Death Communication (ADC). Anyone who knows me knows that I’m going to make contact however I can. I’ll be trying everything! Facebook, cell phones, lights, dishes, garage doors, toasters, pinching butts, etc. But… I’m going to place emphases on items that are on or near night stands.

What about you?

Telephone Calls from the Dead…

Have you received a phone call from the dead? Have you heard stories from someone else who has? If you did, was there an actual conversation? When did you realize you were speaking to a dead person? Was it before or after the conversation? Was anyone else there to witness it? Were you asleep when the phone rang? Can you say for sure that you actually heard the phone ring? Can the phone company trace or provide a record of the call? And maybe you missed the call. Was there a voice mail? Did the phone call serve as some kind of warning of an emergency? Did the experience fall on the anniversary of a specific event? Just think of the research that would be involved with documenting and proving (or not) that this phenomena is real and exists. Just like EVP and other forms of spirit communication, it is next to impossible to plan and analyze these phone calls in laboratory conditions. But don’t worry. Callum “Cal” Cooper (currently pursuing doctoral research in psychology and parapsychology at the University of Northampton in the UK) did all of the work for you. But there’s more work to do and something tells me he’s not done. 

From the back of the book and the author’s website:

There are potentially hundreds of people who have experienced bizarre events of Telephone Calls from the Dead, and much like ghosts, and any other parapsychological phenomena, they appear to be highly common. Once all explanations have been considered, psychological and physical, are we genuinely faced with the reality of contact with the dead and evidence for survival?

This question has been asked before, and was investigated back in 1979, in a book entitled Phone Calls from the Dead, written by D. Scott Rogo and Raymond Bayless. For many years, this subject has remained dormant, until now. 

Author, Cal Cooper

I really enjoyed reading and learning about the past research that Cooper covers in the book. Several times I’ve passed up the opportunity to read the book by Rogo and Bayless. But since Cooper takes over where Rogo and Bayless left off, I really feel like I got two books in one. Like many of my books, this will be one that I will stick on the shelf and probably refer to often.

If you’ve heard Cal speak, you know he has some interesting things to say. As I’ve mentioned before, he seems young, hip, and handsome, and I can’t help but wonder and get excited for what he’ll bring to the future of parapsychology.

Some Harsh Words for EVP Research

Have you ever received a phone call from the dead?

 

 


Some Harsh Words for EVP Research…

The following is a portion of a letter from John L. Randall that was sent to Callum E. Cooper and included in his recent book, Telephone Calls from the Dead. This portion actually has more to do with EVP than phone calls from spirits, but it jumped out at me and I flagged it. John L. Randall (who passed away in 2011 not long after writing this) was a biologist and a member of the UK’s Society of Psychical Research. In this letter, Randall was critiquing anomalous phone calls in general. 

“I must confess that I am ninety-eight per cent sceptical when it comes to anything in the field of EVP. I read Raudive’s book when it first came out… I didn’t bother to keep it for my collection. None of his ‘voices’ conveyed anything approaching extended conversation. It struck me that if you are prepared to ransack all the languages of the world you are bound to find a few isolated words which will match up to any random noise on your tape-recorder. By choosing the right language you can even make the ‘voices’ say whatever you want them to say. A noise such as ‘mer’ for example, could be English (a female horse) or French (mother or sea). In playing this game you have plenty of scope for innovation!”

 

I’ve been finding that I am more critical of EVP than many, but OUCH! Tell us how you really feel! :-) 

Thoughts?

Have you ever received a phone call from the dead?

The video below is an episode of 30 Odd Minutes with Jeff Belanger. In this episode Jeff interviews Cal Cooper, a parapsychologist from the UK. He is the author of the brand new book Telephone Calls From the Dead, which I just started this week. I really like this guy. He has some interesting things to say and I thought it was a great interview. He seems young and hip, and I can’t help but wonder what he’ll bring to the future of parapsychology. 

I wanted to note that in the interview, along with phone calls from the dead, they mention several items that we’ve  discussed here recently at The Big Séance. Some of these items include EVP, Friedrich Jurgenson, séance, Spiricom and George Meek’s phone call from Konstantin Raudive from the other side, Thomas Edison, and talking boards.

Enjoy!
